Sausage & Spinach Frittata
-This crust-less egg bake will have your taste buds screaming for more-
The changing of the seasons brings with it the desire to eat foods that will warm our insides rather than cool them as the watermelon, kale salads and iced teas do throughout the summer months. There's just something about curling up with a hot cup of coffee and a warm piece of egg bake on a chilly morning that brings with it a sense of "comfort." And while for more than 20 years of my life I ate grains like they were going out of style, now I wouldn't touch them with a 10-ft pole. This means that an egg bake in my household has no crust, and while this may sound weird at first, I can almost guarantee that once you try it you'll never go back.
This recipe has easily become one of our staple breakfast foods, especially for during the week! It’s so convenient to be able to cook one thing on a Sunday afternoon and use it for quick and easy breakfasts all week long. I just portion it all out on Sunday and the containers are all ready to grab each morning! Meal prepping is one of the best things you can do to set yourself up for success when eating a clean diet, without it, you are much more likely to fall victim to the many temptations that the food industry sets before us.
This recipe is 21-Day Sugar Detox approved and easily fits into paleo and primal diets alike. I highly encourage you to try this recipe out and let me know what you think of it by commenting below or sharing it on IG and tagging @definefettle!
